Risk factors for HPV infection and cervical cancer are similar in other populations. They include early coitarche, multiple partners and smoking. The prevalence of Genital Warts (GW) is high in the Israeli Jewish women while the incidence of cervical cancer is persistently low. The purpose of the present study is to compare Israeli Jewish women with GW to those with uterine Squamous Cell Cervical Cancer (SCC) with regard to selected risk factors. Women with GW and women with SCC diagnosed during 2000-2012 filled out a prestructured questionnaire containing queries regarding demographic data, and data regarding reproductive factors, sexual habits and smoking. A comparison between the two groups regarding these variables was performed.
